It Takes 90 Years To Grow A Box Of Kleenex

I really did not know that. I had heard about the reluctance of tissue makers to use recycled paper. But I have never switched away from old fashioned hankies - and I know I am in the minority. I note too that if you want to buy recycled paper products they are often more expensive, which seems counter intuitive. But I do use tissues when I have a streaming cold - because I run out of hankies too quickly.

Is this an argument like disposable versus washable diapers?
